Must-have summer footwear

June 25, 2014

As a stylist, I am constantly putting together shopping lists for my clients in order to identify the pieces that their wardrobes and thus, their lifestyles, would most benefit from. While every list is customized to the individual, there are common threads that run through them all.

When it comes to summer footwear, here are the 6 styles that prove relevant again and again, year in and year out, for the widest range of people and situations.

 

The T-Strap Sandal

This flat sandal can be dressed up or down and is flattering to the foot.

 

The Platform Wedge Sandal

Best done in a mid-tone to pale brown or a natural canvas with a woven or cork base, this is the comfortable way to wear heels in the summer.

 

The Canvas Sneaker

If you have some walking to do or you are wearing a sporty outfit, a classic canvas sneaker in a neutral color always makes sense.


The Heeled Dress Sandal

Because summer weddings and other seasonal celebrations are inevitable, keep a heeled dress sandal in black or nude-for-you on hand.

 

The Leather Slide

Whether in the form of a flip-flop, a preppy Jack Roger or the season’s it-sandal, the Birkenstock, a leather slide will serve you well.

 

The Peep-Toe

As either a flat or a heel, the peep-toe is an elegant and lady-like way to show off your pedicure.

Of course there are many other styles of summer footwear that can make stylish and useful additions to a modern wardrobe – the espadrille, the d’orsay sandal, heel or flat, the gladiator or cage sandal and even the huarache – but the 6 above, in my humble opinion, are the most versatile and universal. So, take a minute to evaluate your closet and determine what, if any, you are missing. I promise that your wardrobe will thank you!

LVMH Opens a New Fashion House

June 14, 2019

LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton made waves recently with its announcement of the fashion house, Fenty, led by Rihanna. This was a first in many aspects for LVMH. What stood out the most to me was LVMH was investing in someone whose original profession was not that of a designer. Yes, Rihanna was widely accepted in the fashion world as a trendsetter and had various collaborations under her belt, but she was not a traditional designer.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
